“Hay Fever” presented by The Footlight Players

The Footlight Players present “Hay Fever,” October 9-25 in Charleston. Meet the Bliss Family: a retired actress mother, a novelist father, and two adult children for whom all the world, literally, is a stage. Set in the English countryside, their outrageous antics alternately infuriate and astound their hapless weekend guests, all of whom have been individually invited up for a weekend tête-à-tête. Rousing fights, surprise engagements and fevered declarations of love drive the poor guests from the house, leaving the family happily bickering amongst themselves to the end. Shows are at 8 p.m. Oct. 9-10, 16-17, 22-24 with matinees at 3 p.m. Oct. 11, Oct. 18 and Oct. 25 at The Footlight Theatre, 20 Queen St. in Charleston.
